Unvaccinated and working at Apple? Prepare for COVID-19 testing 'every time' you step in the office

Pandora LB


I am not jabbed ( wanted VLA2001 - but hey it kicked AZ's ar$e and isnt spike protein-centric ... even so HMG cancelled the 100M dose contract)

I test every 4 days so know if i go out I am not a carrier

How many double jabbed and now socially non-distancing, non-masking people test ? Yet go out and about and can potentially be a vector.

Just because you have had a jab (or two) doesnt mean you are immune or can't carry or more importantly cant pass it on .

But many of those who advocate draconian action against non-jabbed (and not all like me are anti-vax ) may be missing the point [sic]

If the current mRNA treatments are such a success:

o why do we need boosters ?

- we are only 10 months into the program

-Israel is looking at 4th doses

o why are the double jabbed hospitalised and dying

o viruses know no politics they just want to spread

... if they cant spread -maybe because of encountering a jabbed protected host... maybe they mutate?

Maybe the jabbed are contributing to the rise of a more virulent, harmful strain??

Just sayin' .... DYOR - this is more than the headlines, lies and propaganda

" but its worrying that totally legitimate cookies are being dropped due to ever moving policies."

Legitimate? If I say I dont want cookies - thats it!


If I cant access your site because I wont accept a cookie I dont visit it.

There are very few sites I *MUST* visit....and mostly they have acceptable cookie policies

DXC Technology asks field-based techies if they'd like to leave

Was it Cassandra ??

I may have read this on https://cassandra-guidedinsights.blogspot.com/ (now de-funct csc-blog)

But isnt DXC just like a premier footy club (UK based - look it up)

Makes loads of money!

but has a huge wage bill...no worries sell the quality players, sacks the manager

- employ enterprising young things who are enthusiastic and will give you no grief, may win the odd game or two

but has so much tied up in the football ground ... no worries sell the ground for redevelopment

- play all games away (or at a temp ground, maybe even somewhere close ) -- who needs home advantage , fans or season ticket sales.

...Oh and the convenience (or otherwise ) to your supporters ( well who cares?)

Die hard fans are locked in to buying the merchandise, traveling to far flung temp grounds for a year or two, so cant jump to a new team

Club soldiers on in slow decline until they drop from the Prem... financial parachutes protect

the accounts, but the players, staff, supporters are screwed

Financials are fickle - but backers can bail at the press of a button ...and may lose a couple of mill (tops)...but will just walk away from the wreckage of a destroyed entity

Thanks Mike (all of you, all the destroyers were called Mike!!)

IBM's Knowledge Centre - oxymoron? Each iteration worse than the previous pile of wombat's doos

Looks like they've fixed it until it is completely broken

Vodafone won't pay employee expenses for cups of coffee

"– whereas most other large businesses happily cover expenses incurred on long days, such as a packet of sandwiches and a hot drink."

Yeah! ... Who?
